More forgotten LOTV

Hello all. I hope you are well and, if not, that you soon will be.

I must apologise for not doing so well with my visiting of late, but we have been making the most of it, while the weather has been good, and taking care of some outdoor jobs.  Still, I am here now to share another rediscovered rubber stamp that was hiding away. This one is from Lili of the Valley. I love this little pair of sweet girls. They were coloured with Promarkers and the papers came from The Range.


I had a fancy for an easel card for a change. The sentiment came from a Purple Onion set that was a gift. I was lucky to find some little buttons that matched the hat perfectly...how I love coordination!!

Well, the grass is looking much greener today, thanks to some showers overnight. The horses are doing very well and actually manage on very little, but it will still be nice to have a bit more grass for them when the autumn and winter come. I am sure Mother Nature will redress the balance.

Whatever the weather where you are, stay well xx

One of my fave LOTV stamps Sarah, love your choice of DP too.

Had some real heavy rain overnight to add to the downpour on Friday, so tubs are now filled with water. We moved the sheep to the hay field behind the house and you should have seen them run when they discovered it!
Joe, who cuts the hay, is hoping this last lot of rain will be enough to spurt the grass into growth on the far hay meadow so he can take another cut as hay will be in short supply this year! Fingers crossed. :)

You are funny with your comment....love reading it, made me laugh.
Love this cute LOTV image and sweet easel card. Papers are gorgeous too along with your cute bow.
Even though it's our winter here down under the poor farmers are in drought and things are not too good. No rain, no grass no food for the poor animals. Hope your yourses are ok.xx

This is so cute! I love LOTV images and these two little gals are adorable. Great job colouring them and I like how soft and gentle it looks, also the easel is the perfect shape to display it.

Gorgeous card Sarah! Beautifully coloured image and in such lovely colours too matching the pretty paper perfectly. I love the die you used to cut the image out with (tattered lace?). The bow and stopper with their buttons finish your card off wonderfully. I love this :). Debra x

Hehehe, the first thing that came to my mind was that song ~ Tea for two and two for tea ... This is such and adorable image, and you used beautiful papers and dies to showcase it. As always, Sarah, your card is lovely and a pleasure to admire.
